What are Montessori Timelines?
Montessori timelines are a unique adaptation of our need to organise things. They depict events in chronological sequence and draw children in with their accuracy, endless possibility of exploration and order.
True to Montessori principles, timelines are simplified yet beautiful and show key events. Shorter timelines relevant to their immediate environment are used with children under 6: A Day in the Life, Seasons, Months, Birthdays & Holidays or even simple sequencing of daily processes and routines.
As children's imagination develops and they enter the second plane, the timelines expand, covering any topic in the universe. Iconic timelines are the Timeline of Life, the Clock of Eras or the Black Ribbon.
You can read more about their use on Montessori Daoshi or the NAMC Montessori Blog.
With our printable time line, you can easily include time study in your classroom or home.
